At RoundRobinWrites.com we spend a lot of time with books. We love talking about books, writing about books, writing books, and so much more. Here are a few of our favorite quotes from books, about books, about writing, and about life!
YES CAPITALS ARE REQUIRED! In August of this year, there is a book coming out about girls who code. It's a middle-grade fiction and code is supposed to be integral to the story (there's a code they have to figure out). I'm so excited and I just requested it in Edelweiss. If you don't know… Continue reading GIRLS WHO CODE
Many staff writers here at Round Robin Writes have been beyond excited for the release of King's Cage by Victoria Aveyard. We fell in love with Aveyard's writing in just the first seven chapters that EpicReads.com released before Red Queen's publication. But Glass Sword had a lot of issues with it, most notably the repetition of "Anyone can betray… Continue reading Full Series Stop

Many moons ago, when I was an education major, hoping, naively, to be the greatest teacher ever, we spent a good week and a half going over statistics. Keep in mind--these are the statistics for… Continue reading New Middle Grade Work
Follow me on Twitter or talk to me in person and you've probably learned of my new found love of audio books. I -recently- purchased A Court of Mists and Fury to listen to and because I only tend to listen in the car or on the train it has taken me a few months to… Continue reading A Court of HOW COULD YOU END THE BOOK THERE
With the rise of the constellation Sirius, we are officially in the dog days of summer. It's time to put the swimmies on Fido and jump in the pool. Or maybe you'd like to just curl up on the couch with the AC blasting while you and your dog both read a good book. Which ever… Continue reading Canine Inspired Book Recs for the Dog Days of Summer
It’s that time again Robin Fans. Time to pile into mom or dad’s car, curl your legs beneath you, and read a book while you zoom down the highway.
